Acceptance for regional tournaments will be based on players from within the region that the tournament is taking place being accepted first.  The entries will then be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Photography & Video

We will have a photographer for the weekend and Sussex Tennis (LTA) will also be producing a film for their annual awards or take photographs at the event, Under new regulations we need to ask your consent and this can be done at registration. Virgin Active is a public venue and we do not therefore have exclusive access over the weekend

We will therefore need to request that you limit the use of photography and filming at the event, more guidance will be given on this at the briefing before the matches start

 

Emergency contact

Please can we encourage players and volunteers to carry emergency contact details including detail of essential medication, if you wish for us to hold them during the event you may do so when booking or at registration.

Data Protection

We will not pass on any information you provide to third parties or use it for marketing or fundraising purposes

We will make best endeavours to ensure that your data is kept secure and only seen by those who need access for the purpose of organising the tournament
